Northampton's cult heroes

This vote is now closed.

Andy Woodman has been voted Northampton's all-time cult hero by Football Focus viewers.

Woodman won with 68% of the vote, ahead of fellow Cobblers favourites Dave Bowen and John Frain.

DAVE BOWEN: 13%

Cobblers legend, player and manager. Managed Northampton in their only season in the top flight.
Steve Philp

A real Cobblers legend. Has a stand named after him at Sixfields. Managed the Cobblers twice as well as holding many other positions within the club. Will always be remembered as manager during our only season in the top flight. Anon.

JOHN FRAIN: 19%

Full-back with no skill, no pace and no hair!! But scored in the 93rd minute at Wembley with a very poor free-kick which won us the game. At the time though it looked like a Roberto Carlos special.
Matt and Hayley B

Roy of the Rovers stuff! Town's first visit to Wembley in their centenary year for the play-off final and it's 0-0 in the 93rd minute and destined for extra-time... John Frain curls a retaken free-kick into the bottom corner and we've partied ever since.
Gavin Wise

He scored the winning goal at Wembley in the Division 3 play-off final a few years back. Surely it's about time Northampton had a mention on Football Focus?
Stuart MacDonald, Northampton, England

ANDY WOODMAN: 68%

A true Cobbler! Enjoyed many great years at the Cobblers, through play-offs and relegations, making many crucial saves, and had a great relationship with fans, even still!
Matt Rumsey

Typical goalie. Larger than life and rather pleasing on the eye. Had a great rapport with the crowd and even after he left was always treated like on of the 'family'. Still highly regarded as an honorary Cobbler.
Deb Frampton

Cheery goalkeeper, best mate of Gareth Southgate. Made some great saves, always joined in with the banter from the crowd, and when he returned to Sixfields with Oxford, whilst warming up on the sidelines, we all sang "Woody is a Cobbler!", he turned his back to the Oxford fans, clapped us and nodded in agreement... A LEGEND!!!!!!
Matt and Hayley B

A great goalkeeper for the club, who made a penalty save under the twin towers of Wembley. Played both play-off finals for us. A huge character for the club, created many an amusing moment with fans and was a hit with every female supporter who adored him.
